Residents and organizers of Generador Indie Pin & Pon Djs
Rafa and Joan have in recent times been considered one of the top rated DJ combos by the public (in recent years chosen as the Best National DJ by the readers of the prestigious music magazine Rockdelux). Almost all of the most representative spanish indie-circuit clubs have warmly accepted their eclectic and fun sessions where everything has its place (from pop, rock, techno, electronic, soul …) caring above all for the quality in the selection and not forgetting the technique, with help from the latest technology tools. They have participated in festivals such as the Festival Internacional de Benicàssim, Sonorama, South Pop Sevilla and Isla Cristina, SOS 4.8 in Murcia, etc … Their maximum is good taste and good technique, trying to mix up from the beginning to the end what seems difficult to combine. They are concert promoters and are also known for their musical-journalistic facet (they co-direct a musical web Indienauta.com and maintain informed the listeners of their weekly radio show, “Rayos C en tus oídos”, of the latest developments in the national and international independent scene), and they’re also ahead of the label “El Genio Equivocado” (home of artists like Odio Paris, Grushenka, Aias, Las Ruinas, Les Sueques …). Someone said about them that they were “indie hard workers” and observing their CV this statement could not be more accurate. Pin&Pon djs, as djs, explore in each of their sessions their extensive knowledge of the latest music, without forgetting to also give free rein to the classics, those hits that have been with us for years and have become indispensable on the crazy nights in Spain.
